Job creation can end Boko Haram menace, says C&S
By BOSE ADELAJA
SPIRITUAL leader and chairman Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Worldwide, Rev. Samuel Abidoye, has attributed the present security challenges in Nigeria to unequal distribution of wealth in the country even as he called on government at all levels, corporate organisations and individuals to create jobs for Nigerian youths.
Speaking at an interactive session with journalists during the church’s 72th international conference with theme “My year of triumph”, which took place at Oko-Oba, Agege in Lagos, he lamented that many Nigerian youths are easily enticed into the Islamic sect as a result of idleness.
Abidoye explained that the conference which kicked off on Monday was to give members a reflection of the past and present plans of the church in order to restrategize for the future.
The spiritual father also advised political leaders in the country to stay away from corruption so as to leave a legacy for the youths, adding that the Movement will not relent in praying against bad leadership, kidnapping and bombings amongst others.
His words: “The country is deeply in corruption, how can some body earn as much as N20 billion in a month while others are hunger? Unemployment is on the increase in Nigeria. We can create jobs among the youths to reduce the menace of Boko Haram,” he said.
He, however, called on the youths to be creative and independent in their respective homes, rather than wait for paid employments, stressing that the conference will be rounded off with ordination of some hard working members of the church.
